February is Language Learning Month. We can help you learn languages spoken all over the world, including Pirate and Shakespeare!
In the Adult Services room, check out our language learning collection. You can pick up CDs from outstanding language educators like Berlitz, Pimsleur and more. Listen to a program on your next road trip and arrive at your destination speaking a new language!
Mango is free for all library patrons and can be accessed from anywhere with an Internet connection. Each lesson combines real life situations and audio from native speakers with simple, clear instructions. The courses are presented with an appreciation for cultural nuance and and real-world application by focusing on the four key elements of language learning: vocabulary, pronunciation, grammar and culture.

In addition to traditional language courses, Mango also offers the opportunity to learn through foreign film with Mango Premiere™ and access to a variety of specialty mini courses, like Pirate, Medical Spanish and romance courses.
